The parcel I sent to my friend, arrived at her home, yesterday. Here is what she said: "Thank you Ruth, you brought tears to my eyes! You're such a kind and loving lady ♥♥♥" and then "When you know that someone still actually cares and thinks of you, it makes the day more bearable".
I really only sent a tiny gift, a little necklace I made and a pack of popping candy. Teeny things have big ripples... I'm slowly learning that the teeny things matter.
Today, I helped a friend with her schoolwork for several hours and didn't have much time for anything else. I sent a message via Facebook to a friend to tell her that I think she's amazing. It is enough.
Tomorrow I'm delivering a present to another friend! I'm very excited!
Today I had to take my eldest child to the doctor.
Our doctor is wonderful so I made her a gift of a necklace and a small key-ring. She was so surprised to get them and she gave me a hug!
I love gifting hand-made things to people who appreciate them!
